We invite you to explore the services outlined on this page and then to stop into one of our public showrooms or give us a ring to discover why going 360º will make all the difference for your next workspace.
Space Planning and Design
AOI provides quality, professional design and space planning support to ensure a project’s success. Our designers employ CAD systems which provide accurate specifications, product lists, renderings and installation drawings. We are knowledgeable of codes and regulations, competitive products, fabric and finish schemes, and new, flexible work styles. Our designers are licensed in the State of Illinois and offer assurance that when it comes to the overall design of your office, our professionals guarantee that no question will go unanswered.
AOI has solutions to integrate technology in today’s fluid furniture solutions. Most collaborative work spaces today require a variety of video conferencing technology products. Collaboration happens anywhere—in physical spaces, digital domains and often both. Wherever it occurs, space plays a central role in hosting and boosting how people collaborate. AOI has the solutions to create a space that’s optimized for interaction.
AOI provides remanufactured products that conserve resources, thus reducing the negative impact on our environment. AOI restores valuable assets to their original working condition and appearance for approximately one third of the cost of new. Whether simply applying new fabric or re-laminating worksurfaces, our ability to make old furniture new again has outfitted thousands of office spaces throughout the Chicagoland area.
